Conversation worksheet. Students are presented with 12 characters and must choose only 5 to take with them to a new planet to restart humanity. Then they must compromise with their partner to choose 5, and then again in a group of 4. (Pyramid discussion). Each character has positive and negative points, such as the racist farmer/hunter, or the violent chemist. Written by a native English speaker and useful for multiple purposes (descriptions, law and order, civilisation, debate techniques, suggestions, opinions, comparative adjectives, superlatives etc.) Contains instructions and also a possible follow-up activity in which students role-play being on a damaged hot-air balloon approaching a desert island, and students must argue to their peers why they will be useful. Then there is a vote on who will be cast into the ocean!

This downloadable printable is best suited for high school students and adults at Pre-intermediate (A2), Intermediate (B1), Upper-intermediate (B2), Advanced (C1) and Proficient (C2) level. It is valuable for practising Future tenses in English, and was designed for developing your pupils' Listening, Speaking and Reading skills. It centers around the theme of Describing people. It includes a key, too.
